Exchanging cash - UK or Turkey

by emmajanesmith

Hi all,

I suppose this is a general Turkey question but I've posted it here since my holiday will be in Kalkan in Sep 08. Is it better the exchange British pounds in Turkey than in UK? I heard you get a better deal if you exchange in Turkey, if that's the case, where's the best place to do this?

Cheers,

Emma

As a general rule (at least for GBP, US$ and Euro)- it is better to exchange it in Turkey rather than at your end. And it is definitely not a hearsay - it's true!

There are a lot of money exchange in Sultanahmet, checkout their exchange rates before deciding into one. There's one adjacent to McDonalds.

Nevertheless, ATM cards would be just safe to use wihtout the worry of bringing cold cash with you during your travels. And ATM machines are everywhere, even at the remotest part of Turkey. And the good news is, if you lose the card, you don't lose your money, you could always report it, but if you lose your cash - that's the end of the line.

Credit cards and/or debit cards would also work on most establishments.

hi emmajanesmith,

its better to change money in turkey but also avoid some banks in turkey to change the money as they give low exchange rates the best to change th money from exchange offices but before check it as well u will find different rates .

Hi Emma,
Take sterling with you. Best rates are to be had in Kalkan. Will accept £ in most eateries,shops and even if you are hiring a boat. 2.4YTL to £1 at present.
Heard of people getting 1.95YTL in GB yesterday. 6 ATMS in the town.

Hi,
Many of the places in Kalkan (Hotels, Travel Agencies for booking day trips, Restaurants) accept and charge in Pounds. Wise to have some Liras but wouldn't exchange too much. Can exchange in Turkey, but airport rates weren't good.

Travel Tips for Kalkan

Palm Beach Club

by sandysmith

We only got around to one beach club and the one we chose was Palm Beach Club. Reached by a free taxi boat (5 min journey) to the left hand side of the bay of Kalkan is this relaxing spot of paradise. We saw pictures of it at the harbour and the decking and cosy Turkish corner seating areas on the grass looked a bit more inviting and varied than just concrete. It was great choice, not overcrowded, steps into the sea as opposed to steep ladders, a small pebbly beach if you wanted shallower water for snorkelling, excellent service and really good facilities and food at the restaurant on the upper level. Just one note the water was a bit cooler here due to natural springs - one minuting swimming in warm water , the next a cold bit! Cost wise for beds and food for lunch it was about the same as getting a dolmus out to Patara beach and spending the day there. Lovely to have the variety. A really relaxing day spent here on the sunbeds, reading our books, overlooking the sea and a great view back to Kalkan. Just a great chill out day

Demre diving.

by Tdiver

Not in Kalkan,obviously but put it here as there look to be some great dive sites there and there is no page for Demre itself.Sorry the page is only in Turkish.

Don't miss the Mediterranean Lamb!

by Debbiehyne about TRIO

Have just returned frrom an Easter holiday in Kalkan. This is a new restaurant right on the harbour front with lovely views of the marina.
The menu was really extensive with good choices for my vegetarian friend. I had the mixed mezze followed by the Mediterranean Lamb - it was fabulous. Service was very good - efficient but not obtrusive. The decor was very tasteful with a chocolate brown and cream colour scheme. Ambience was very relaxing - good music playing in the background whilst we were there - jazz and african chill out . There is a seperate bar so it was nice to have a cocktail watching the sun set before we sat down for our dinner. If you are visiting Kalkan this place is worth a visit Mediterranean lamb - fresh, tender, tasty and beautifully presented. I enjoyed every mouthful. Fresh fish was good as well so were the prawns cooked with garlic

ALL DAY English breakfast for those missing home.

Great landscape

by Diana75

If you driving from Kalkan to Myra for the first time you have no idea what impressive landscape will open in front of you just 4 km away of Kalkan.

After a bend you find yourself in front of this wonderful view of the mountain, with the two cliffs which opens in a wonderful bay with the magnificent Kaputas beach.
